Wondering Why Corporate Information Technology Seems Perpetually Bogged Down?

Have you ever questioned why, despite the quantum leaps that information technology has made in the past decades, the corporate function that bears the same name — IT — does not get any better at delivering technology-based business solutions at an acceptable pace?

IT Governance Doesn’t Solve Lower Quality Issues

This book shows how and why your IT team is systematically delivering lower-quality systems with increasing complexity, instead of spearheading the drive for business agility.
Yet, have no fear; this is no techy treatise. The unwanted complexity is technical in nature, but the root causes are not. Decision rights, accountabilities and performance measures are the guilty sources of undesirable behaviors that have been lasting for decades with no signs of improvement. And this standstill will continue for decades to come unless business people change the rules of the game.
Here you will find many corporate IT behaviors rarely disclosed that remain discretionary internal topics or plainly technical issues, but nevertheless have a major impact on your IT strategy.

An Executive Leadership Guide for Sustainable Organizational Change Leading to Genuine Business Agility

These volumes are targeted to executive leaders who rely on IT to run their businesses. Volume One will help you understand important internal IT dynamics that step down quality and hinder business agility. Volume Two describes the game-changing IT strategies to creating the corporate IT model you need to make a long-lasting difference: instill a true paradigm shift towards an information technology governance strategy that puts your business interests above the rest.

Blogger, speaker, software executive, and bestselling author Jill Dyché has been thinking about leadership a lot lately.

Praise for The New IT

“Jill has penned a de Toquevillean map of the digital world. Should be a required text for every business leader in the country.”
Thornton May, futurist and author of The New Know

“Enterprise IT has reached an inflection point in how services are delivered and consumed, requiring our profession to undertake a transformation of our own. Jill Dyché describes well the challenges we face, how to assess them, and how to take action to complete the journey toward modern enterprise IT.”
Kimberly Stevenson, Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Intel

“Conversational, intuitive, and intelligent, this book goes right to the heart of governance (control), innovation (change), identity (authority), relevance (alignment), and influence (strategy). It’s a timely book that should be read by executives across organizations.”
Peter Marx, Chief Innovation and Technology Officer, City of Los Angeles

“A highly readable, entertaining book that will help CIOs and their executive partners address the ongoing challenge of converting IT from a strategic liability to a strategic asset.”

This is the fourth of a series of research volume of papers from the Business and Information Technologies global research network. The BIT network comprises 21 partners from 17 countries, and conducts studies on the impact of new information and communication technologies on business practice, industry structure and economic change. This volume contains papers from Chile, Croatia, Italy, Korea, New Zealand, Switzerland, Taiwan and the United States. It presents a unique longitudinal and cross-sectional view of technology adoption and business practice across a diverse set of countries and economies. Combining the takeaways from the rest of the volumes, it appears that there are some commonalities with respect to patterns of technology adoption, but there are also significant differences among countries. Furthermore, innovative practices can arise in every country and there is the potential to apply these practices in other countries. Findings are obtained through surveys, GNP studies and sector studies in the series.
